He could not care less.
Breathing regularly is the only thing our man is concerned about.
OH MY GOSH!!!
Either that, or Las Vegas police knows how to treat their celebrities.
The worse part is TSA is going to brag about how many guns they have prevented from being taken on an airplane. That means send more money.
Here's a short video of another, Sammy Davis, Jr.
And for the heck of it, Sammy shooting up a bar with a Thompson in a film. It's at the end.
"Soon the event spread to Hollywood celebrities and western movie stars. Surprisingly, the fastest guns in Hollywood in the
early 60's were 1st = Jerry Lewis, 2nd = Sammy Davis Jr. and 3rd = Dean Martin."
Most people that owns guns are pretty stupid I have found. Jerry being the exception.
For everyone with a 150 IQ, there's some guy with a 50...
Of course Jerry Lewis used to be known for throwing suits away after wearing them only once. People with that much money to burn normally fly around in private aircraft.
If I were flying to Detroit, I'd go somewhere else.
Nothing new here, moving on...
If he had a "blue card" (our registration card system here in Clark County) then it was real -- the cops here aren't gonna register a fake gun under our firearm ordinance. Say what you want about the TSA generally, but since Frontsight and the SHOT Show are here in Southern Nevada, our TSA folks in Vegas have certainly seen plenty of genuine firearms I'm sure.
You're right. If the gun was unloaded and no ammo was found, who cares?
I feel for the guy, it was likely just a totally stupid oversight.
But it's a C class felony here to be popped with a concealed carry weapon and no permit. (Though who knows how this will end up since he is a big local celeb here... maybe no appetite for prosecution in the end ...)
Didn't this same thing recently happen at LAX to a somewhat has-been TV star???
Knowing Jerry,even at 82, as JohnBT has pointed out,he can probably handle himself firearms wise ,better than 90% of us on this board.
Beware the oldtimer who's trained and knows what he's doing.
Jerry will snuff you before you can say "God Bless You".
Thank god there are very few of each...
I think Jerry is somewhere midway between those points.
One news report stated that Jerry "was tackled" upon discovery of the gun/prop gun. That must have been interesting.
The spirit of humanity and kindness makes a guy glow just to be here with such nice people. Expect the same compassionate support when you need it.
People in Lewis's career field probably travel a lot. Having the gun in your valise when you're being driven around is fine, but airplanes are different. His gun probably sat in his luggage all the time. Then he tried to get on a plane. Didn't think about it. Small mistake, big mistake.
How much more ungrateful can the TSA and .gov be? I notice he was good enough to use in their... I can't remember the name... was it GSO? Where they would send Bob Hope to the troops. Our government is increasingly using "pump 'em and dump 'em" as an ideology.
